    Kate Middleton and Prince William have been on tour with their two adorable children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Their week long trip to Poland and Germany is reportedly a bid to smooth relations between Britain and the EU following last year’s Brexit referendum, but so far all anyone can talk about are the two tiny royals. While George has been caught pulling faces, Charlotte melted hearts as she did her first ever official curtsey.

    However, another talking point has, of course, been the Duchess of Cambridge’s stunning outfits. She paid homage to Poland with a gorgeous ivory satin cocktail dress by Gosia Baczynska while attending a garden party in the country’s capital, Warsaw.

    And now she has wowed fans across the globe with a bold gown by German designer Markus Lupfer. The sleeveless bird print dress, teamed with a chain link silver belt and scalloped Prada heels were an instant hit, with many commenting on how classic yet unique the look was.

    Kate opted for this striking dress when attending one of Germany’s last remaining ball rooms, Clärchens Ballhaus, in Berlin. The night saw Kate and William rubbing shoulders with various style, fashion, art and technology influencers as they discussed German and British culture.

    One guest that Game of Thrones fans may recognise is actor Thomas Wlaschiha, who plays Faceless Man Jaqen H’ghar in the popular fantasy series.

    We know that Kate and William are huge fans of the show, so we wonder if they managed to get any spoilers out of him?

    Or, even better, an Ed Sheeran-style cameo…
